Soaking up the Sun

Hey everyone ! It's Mindi with you today. I am happy to be sharing a pocket page project with you. The June Storytime and it's pretty color scheme were perfect for all my summery/beach photos. In this blog post I am going to be sharing a trip that we took down to the beach. Here is what my page looks like. 

Let's start by talking by my title card/journaling card. I started out with this pink Mermaid. I wanted to get some details down about our day. I went back and forth between printing it onto patterned paper or white. I went with white. Then once I had it all printed out I wanted a little bit more color. I added a strip of blue paper on the top and then a strip of that fun washi tape from Cocoa Daisy. I thought it matched real well. Once I had that part done. I finished it off with the letter M and then some sequence. 

This first card is more journaling about our day. I used a die cut piece and cut out the word Fun from the sun + fun tag. I added a word strip onto the photo and an enamel dot. 

Along with playing the water the kids love to play in the sand. They like to dig holes and sand castles. Typical kids right ?!! 

Here is what the other corner of the page looks like. This was a fun time when all the kids and a couple of the big kids jumped down the sand dunes. I spelled out the word jump with the letter stickers and added a sequence. 

Another look at the top corner. I took a photo of my feet and the waves coming in. 

This fun filler card came about when I was looking through the stack of patterened papers. I though this mermaid one would be great. I added the gold leaf and and few other embellishments. I also added a photo of my son and father in law playing in the waves next to the filler card. 

Alright, that is all the sharing I have for today. Thanks for coming and I hope that you have found some inspiration.
